Our take on the Universal Underdash Kit

Here's a way to get music into a vehicle that does not easily accommodate an in-dash receiver. Mount a shaft-style or DIN chassis receiver into this one-size-fits-all kit, and then attach the kit to the underside of your dash.

You can also use this kit to add a DIN-sized equalizer to a vehicle that only has room for the receiver in the dash.

In most cases, using this kit requires modification to your car and/or the kit itself.

If you're purchasing a receiver (costing $129.99 or more) or DIN-sized equalizer from us, you can add this kit to your order, and we'll send it to you free.

Remember, most vehicles will accommodate a receiver in the dash, not beneath it. Not sure about yours? Try our vehicle selector.

Dimensions: 10"W x 3-1/2"H x 9-1/4"D (including flange); 8-9/16"W x 2-9/16"H x 7-9/16"D (undercarriage only). Warranty: 1 year.

worked well in my boat.

Written By Dave G, Cincinnati on Thursday, August 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Encloses the entire in-dash unit and mounts easily under the main console of the boat. It is a no frills product that did exactly what I needed.

Under Dash Box That Did The Trick

Written By Mike S., Fayetteville, NC on Friday, May 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Universal Underdash Kit was included as a no-charge accessory with my purchase, primarily because I asked for it and because no wiring harness adapter is available for my vehicle (1969 Chevrolet Caprice).
Pros:
Mounting holes are plentiful. Mounting screws included in kit.
Cons:
None, this kit did what I needed it to do, hold my new Head Unit under the dash.

Convienence!

Written By EagleRego, Aiken, SC29803 on Friday, June 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you require something CLEAN, NEAT and APPEALING to put your new stereo in and the location you are placing it in (Car, Boat or RV etc.) this is what you need. Makes the stereo look like a factory installation.
Pros:
Simple, makes it look like a factory install.
Cons:
1 color, Black

Good fit and finish and looks to be durable.

Tent Trailer

Written By Anonymous, Califorina on Thursday, June 17, 2010
 
Used this to install a stereo in the tent trailer so we could remove the I pods
from the kids ears and we could enjoy music together. It had enough room behind
the stereo to hide all the wires and made for a nice clean install.

Worked Great

Written By Joe, Wisconsin on Sunday, March 15, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Did just what I needed it to do. Mounted a car stereo under a shelf in the maintenance shop at work. Added a 12 volt 5 amp power supply for portable coolers. Added a pair of home speakers and a car antenna, nice durable NEAT looking shop radio. The kit worked flawlessly, no troubles. In the end it looks and works great. Thanks for another great product, Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unit worked perfectly...Used it to mount a din radio in a farm tractor that had an old-style shaft radio long since deceased...Shaft style radios are almost impossible to find...Found this unit and decided to give it a try...Unit is sturdy and fit my new radio perfectly...I'm now in the modern world!!!

Marine Installation

Written By Sebastian, San Francisco Bay, CA on Tuesday, September 19, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just used this under dash kit to install a marine stereo in my sailboat. It fit well, offered a secure, protected mount and everything went as planned. Best of all, it was offered free of charge by Crutchfield, with my stereo and speakers.

Only comment - I wish it had been available in white.

Universal Underdash Kit

Written By Bronco1967, Washington State on Saturday, July 22, 2006
 
This adapter lets you put the latest tunes in your classic ride. I didn't have to hack my dash to install a DIN mount receiver. I was able to keep the stock radio in its stock location, for maximum classic resale value, not that I would ever part with my Bronco. This kit makes a good, clean, mount. Easy to paint to match your interior too.
